Michael J. Fox on his battle with Parkinson's disease

As part of an interview with the CBS newspaper "Sunday Morning," the star of the film series "Back to the Future" admitted how difficult it is for him to live in the present day. In the announcement of the show, the actor declared "I will not live to be 80", which can be seen from the statement he made.

"It is true that death is knocking at the door. I won't lie. It's getting hard, it's getting harder. Every day is getting harder."Michael said. Thereafter, he revealed that he had had surgery to remove a benign tumor from his spine, but the procedure "impaired" his walking, and as a result, he began to "break" other parts of his body, including his arm, elbow, face, and hand.

In his explanation, he explained that Parkinson's disease is chiefly characterized by falling, and that other problems such as chewing food and pneumonia can also occur in patients with the disease.

"The truth is that Parkinson's disease is not a disease that you die from.

Parkinson's disease is a disease that you die with. That is why I did consider the mortality of this disease from time to time. " - said Fox, who is admired by many because he has been fighting a serious disease for several years and has always preferred optimism over despair.

Having been diagnosed by doctors when he was 29 years old, Michael went on to begin a foundation at the age of 30, started a film and television production company and worked on many projects with his family. It has always been an immense source of strength for the actor to always rely on his wife, Tracy Pollan (62), that he married in 1988, and they have four children: twins Aquinnah and Schuyler (27), a daughter Esma (20), and a son Sam (33). We hope that Fox will come out stronger in this fight.
